Cellar/Tasting Notes
The creation of Super Bowl-winning coach, Dick Vermeil and his winemaker Paul Smith, the 2009 vintage of the Vermeil XXXIV Red Blend is a mouth-filling, plush Bordeaux style blend. Black fruit and anise aromas and flavors are held together with the oak. Pleasing and full.

Commenting on Dick Vermeil's entry into winemaking, Robert Parker wrote: "This is the personal wine project of the Super Bowl-winning, renowned NFL head coach, Dick Vermeil. Vermeil was raised in Napa Valley and his initial dive into the wine world is impressive. It goes against the rule-of-thumb that celebrities rarely achieve anything special in the world of wine."

Opaque ruby. Pungent aromas of dried cherry, cassis, licorice and botanical herbs, with subtle vanilla and cracked pepper accents that build with air. Sappy, palate-staining dark fruit flavors gain sweetness with air while retaining a spicy edge. Shows very good energy and clarity on the finish, which features suave floral pastille and licorice qualities. I find this wine quite approachable now, although it has the depth to age.
